21st Century Learning with Virtua Education

Now more than ever parents are choosing 21st Century learning for their kids (both homeschool and public). The seemingly endless sea of options for online learning can be both a blessing and a curse!

21st Century Learning with Virtua Education

Virtua Education from the Homeschool Buyers Co-op is an online secular homeschool curriculum that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to customize a learning path to your child’s knowledge.

Virtua School has an extensive library of applicable courses that cover English, Math and Science from Elementary to High School.

With access to over 2,000 micro-lessons in English, Math and Science across a variety of formats, such as slideshows, videos, graphs and text, Virtua School helps take the guess work out of education at home!

How Does Virtua School Work?

1. Begin with Diagnostics

You begin Virtua with diagnostic assessments. This process identifies the student’s knowledge gaps and brings relevant micro-lessons (or nuggets as they call them) into the student’s learning pathway.

These diagnostic assessments are not tests. They simply gather information to help the Virtua system to know what your student needs to learn next.

That’s why during the diagnostics they don’t tell you which questions you got right or wrong. It doesn’t matter. Every answer given helps CENTURY (the learning platform Virtua uses) to understand your child’s brain better so they can help them progress more quickly.

2. Your Path is Created

Once your student has completed the diagnostics, Virtua creates a tailored learning path for them to follow. The path consists of assigned nuggets (small lessons) for them to complete.

They can choose to do all 3 subjects or just one, plus you can go into the parent dashboard and assign specific nuggets if there are topics you know your child needs work on.

3. Follow The Given Learning Path

Nuggets are small lessons on your child’s learning path. They typically include a short video lesson with questions for them pertaining to that information immediately following the short lesson.

What we love so much about nuggets is that they are small, bite-sized pieces of information. This is especially helpful for kids who have a short attention span because they can easily complete a nugget (or a few) in a short time span, allowing them to have completed a whole concept before taking a break.

The Virtua AI system constantly re-assesses your student and personalizes learning pathways not just in terms of content that needs to be studied but when content needs to be revisited.
